Pop singer Bruno Mars has been named Billboard magazine's Artist of the Year.

The Grenade hitmaker follows in the footsteps of other stars, including Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift and Kanye West, in receiving the honour, and the publication's editors have credited his chart success with making him their number once choice for 2013.

Mars' multi-million selling second album Unorthodox Jukebox produced three hit singles on the Billboard Hot 100, including Locked Out of Heaven, which spent six weeks at number one, and editors also praise him for proving popular live with his Moonshine Jungle world tour.

The singer says of the Billboard honour, "My dream was to not get a day job but to sleep, wake up and do my music. And hopefully, my music does all the talking. I want to keep that dream forever. That's it. That's what I love to do."
